Hi again!

Sorry, but I can't do anything but repeat what others have already said:

"Sites are usually crawled within 24 hours and no more then 48. Right now there is a 6-12 month lag between the date a site is crawled and the date it appears in the Wayback Machine." - http://archive-it.org/public/faq#1

I'm afraid you have to wait longer, Matthew. Perhaps even untill next year...

I see. I assumed that 6 months was as long as it could take, I see I'm wrong. Thanks for clearing it up. Is my blog even archivable at all? I had a previous blog in 2006 but it was blocked for some reason. No big loss, my 2006 blog was sloppy, but my 2008 blog means a lot to me so I want to make sure that I will one day appear. Thanks in advance.

To my knowledge, Bloggers are archived correctly. In any case, they are not excluded by a robots.txt. If they would be, a message saying "Robots.txt Query Exclusion" would appear if you would submit your blog using the "Take Me Back" form.

Thanks. The only reason I have a blog is to make sure that I leave behind some sort of legacy, and of cource I try to make sure that many of the posts are dated as quickly as possible, therefore giving it historical interest. Several posts I made in feb/march are already quite dated. I mix these with less topical posts that maybe will still be relevant in 10 years. Maybe. If DVDs die then basically half my blog will be dated!
